US Mint silver coin sales stats Bullion American Silver Eagles earn the headline news as the biggest selling US Mint coin, and they have for several weeks.

July silver eagles sales closed impressively high. In fact, the month was the best July in history with 2.8 million eagles sold. August looks to be starting just as strong. 200,000 are already on the Mint books as out the door and 425,000 were purchased in the last seven days. The silver eagle tally is now up at 16,834,500.

The rest of the US Mint silver products were less rosy in the seven sales days ended Sunday, August 2. Demand was modestly lower. The gem in the bunch was the 2009 Silver Proof set. 35,167 more were snapped up by collectors, bringing the total since July 17 to 385,739.
